Unhappy Not my favorite look

I bought my bike without one. It isn't my favorite look, and I've always had other things I could spend 180 bucks on for the bike. It does suck trying to keep the underside clean though.

I hear ya

No they don't look that bad. Personal preference I guess. I did see a red one and a carbon fiber one earlier this week on ebay. I think at least one of them had the chaingaurd attached to it. Have fun shopping for your bike. I know it's my favorite pastime.

OPP has one that looks nice, also World of Carbon in the UK, and Magical Racing in Japan as well. All are carbon-fiber.
All run around $300 though.

Check OPP's web site. They make some of their stuff in fiberglass as well.
Would be a lot cheaper. And you can paint it any color you want.

Usually everybody (including me) who spent big bucks on carbon pieces will not dare paint them.

You can use a hugger from a CBR 600RR. It requires you to drill a small hole on your swingarm, but so do all the others anyway, and this mod is way cheaper.

Although drilling into a perfectly good swingarm goes against my nature, however mine already had one installed when I bought the bike.

It's not a perfect fit, but works ok.
You may need to notch around the hole just a bit on the hugger for the brake hose clip anti-rotation nib to fit for the SP2's.

I don't see where it does a very good job of preventing dirt from being slung onto the shock, but it does add a bit to the appearance.
